A native of Marion, Forrest was born January 28, 1961. He is preceded in death by his father, Bobby Joe Kincaid; and his brother, Terrance Arthur Kincaid, Sr.
Forrest was a longtime employee at Baxter Healthcare. He also worked as a painter, a trade he learned from his late father. An avid sports fan, he loved the Dallas Cowboys and the UNC Tarheels.
